Quirks :-)

Filed under: tag — Cris @ 02:50

The Quirk tag that dear Usha had given me some time back
The rules:

1. Link the person who tagged you
2. Mention the rules on your blog
3. Tell 6 unspectacular quirks of yours
4. Tag 6 following bloggers by linking them
5. Leave a comment on each of the tagged blogger’s blogs, letting them know that they have been tagged

The list –

1. In constant motion
– this is something no one who meets me fail to notice – some part of me would always be moving, sometimes it would be the whole of me. I cant seem to stand or sit still, I have got to move. And it really bugs me when people try to stop me. I understand that some find it annoying to talk to a moving object but my whole balance/concentration is disturbed if they stop my motion. No explanation for this!

2. No sense of direction
I don’t know if it qualifies as a quirk. This is more a side of my character than a habit. I may travel the same route for all my life and still not know where the left and right turns are or what the streets look like! Absent mindedness at its core?

3. Six
This is something my college friends would definitely remember. I like this number so very much for some reason I am yet to figure out. So I stop most things at 6 – for this reason most friends wrote 6 pages of autograph for me. Its just 5 rules here 😦 I am tempted to addd another!

4. Rubbing scratches off!
When your nails scratch against clothes or some smooth surface, they make this annoying noise that many thoroughly hate! My immediate reaction is to rush to them and rub their finger nails – as if I am taking it off somehow! I do this without really thinking about it.

5. Drawing eyes
If I have a pen in hand, 7 out of 10 times ythe paper I am writing on will have a pair of eyes somewhere in the page, one of them filled in tears. I do it without pen too, with fingers scribbling on floors/walls – and also rubbing it off with hands at the end!

6. Cant stand a simple lie
This becomes hard when your friends may want you to say something to protect them – it may be a small thing and harmless, but I still cant get to do it; without killing myself. Say someone asked me if my toothbrush is pink and I for someone reason lied its red, it would bug me for the rest of the day until I call him and correct it “No its pink!!!”.

Passing the tag to –




  1. no sense of direction..hehe…reminds me of my mom who can get confused even if she has been going to the same place for 5 years!! btw drawing habits is a quirky habit of mine too….esp. during boring meetings thats one thing I love to do!! I actually draw faces….

  2. The no sense of direction rings a bell for me. As do the drawing stuff. I draw abstract designs though, mostly creepy ones. How’s that for quirky?

  3. @mathew, I can easily understand your Mom’s position! We poor all-time-thinking geniuses face these difficulties!

    @MRose that does sound quirky! I should have tagged you too! Take it up will you? 🙂

  4. teehee.. gud ‘uns! dankes for taking up the tag, girl! 🙂
    and yeah, u’ve been missed..hope the exams were good (to you,i mean! :P)!
    aiyo..i used to have that ‘drawing eyes in notebooks while attending to lectures’ problem. sometimes even faces.. but mostly profile pics! 😀
    i still do that on those white boards in office meeting rooms while im waiting for a call or something.
    though my all time fave drawings are always funny the ones which go on n on, without quite reaching an end-point.. good time pass,it is. 🙂

  5. @usha, thanks for giving it dear! You woke me up! And yes, undoubtedly its one of the best time passes ever – although my favorite is hitting the front bencher with an empty pearlpet bottle.
